Help Support Appalachian Communities to Get a Seat at the Table in DC

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Earlier this month, citizens from Appalachia joined with the Citizens Coal Council and leaders from coal-impacted regions across the country for an unprecedented meeting with the Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewell, in Washington, DC.

Community members made the journey because this year, Secretary Jewell will make major decisions that impact the water and future of Central Appalachia. This important meeting is just one step in our work to ensure that Appalachians have a seat at the table during this critical time.

You can help. Support our work to protect our water and our future.

Over 1.2 million acres – 10% of Central Appalachia – have been surface mined for coal.  Lackluster enforcement and rampant mining pollution have deprived Appalachian communities of the clean water that most Americans take for granted.

It’s a critical time for Appalachian communities. Your support is key to ensuring important protections are made and that we have the funds to ramp up for the Our Water, Our Future Action thisSeptember 8th and 9th in Washington, DC.

You can support this work by donating to the Our Water, Our Future effort, our grassroots campaign to get real federal enforcement to protect mountain communities from the ravages of the coal industry.
